They are only giving out information the administration wants them to.

I would be very skeptical of “classified”. That term includes anything from FOUO, confidential, to top secret or more importantly “whatever the hell they decide is classified” after the fact regardless of whether she had a reason to possess it or not. Remember, they have a story line and tale to spin here.

There seems to be a stunning amount of bad (dis?)information going around about all this.

Broadwell is a prom queen and valedictorian from North Dakota who went to West Point. Hardy the MO of a spy...

She has top secret clearance herself. Since she has high level clearance, it is hardly surprising that she would have classified info, and the real complaint here seems to be a technicality that she should have had it locked up better.

We’ve now heard about the shirtless photo guy and Jill Kelley...Except now the NYT reports that the shirtless guy is actually a veteran agent who shot a gun-wielding intruder at MacDil a couple years ago. Also, the ‘shirtless’ photo was him posing with some shooting dummies in a silly picture shared between families that share goofy pictures with eachother. If it is true that there is nothing remotely sexual or private about the ‘shirtless’ photo, and no sexual relationship at all between shirtless guy and Kelley, why are we even hearing about a shirtless photo? It is like somebody is trying to make us think the guy is obsessed with her, when he is very likely just pursuing a weird email that knows too much about the movement of high level generals and CIA dudes.

It almost seems as if there are different factions within CIA and FBI that are at war with each other trying to shape the narrative.

Or perhaps it is just the fog of reporters trying to get to the bottom of a sex scandal, and hyping random details in order to make them more titillating?

There is a public speech that she gave around a year ago...I watched the clip of it...where she rattled off that she had a Top Secret SCI clearance, and higher. I just sat there and wondered why you’d go and brag about such. She was some public-attention whore...nothing less.

Because of the classified data...the Army will spend around six months studying where it came from. My guess is that she downloaded onto some kind of media (either a USB-stick or a CD). If this is the case, then she will end up in some court martial episode...like the punk kid over at Fort Meade is facing right now. At the very least...she gets kicked out of the Army because of the general attitude right now over stupid handling of classified material.

Now, on another front...the affair? If there’s any connection to the period when she was a Army officer, in uniform, then they can bring out another charge or two.

At the very least...her Army career is wrapped up and finished. Journalism career? I don’t know if any major newspaper will hire her for the foreseeable future. She probably ends up out in Idaho in three years...teaching at some community college.

Keeping a classified computer at home is simply not allowed.

Some command personnel can.. but as an O-5, that's not going to be the case.

Maybe there are still a couple of Americans left in those agencies.

When the FBI has an “appointment” to pick up the documents from her home, what makes us think that they are were intact when she handed them over?

They should check the shredder remnants in her garbage.

The military is pretty serious about securing classified information. Somebody posted about how a large percentage of the prisoner population at the US Disciplinary Barracks at Ft. Leavenworth, KS are there for violating security procedures.

Well, is she still in the military or not? Did she get orders to go sleep with Petreaus or NOT?

This bimbo couldn’t even keep her driver’s license safe, it was found in a DC park.

She is in no way qualified to have any secrets.

Not to mention how she blew this story wide open!

I think the drivers license found in the park was to send a message to her... A La Vince Foster.

Assuming she had authorization, there would be logs of her having signed the computer in and out of the secure site.

Of course, they all carry these things on their laptops.

Not if they want to avoid jail time. There are very strict rules on the handling of classified information, and copying it to a personal laptop is way, way over that line.

i looked this up and i don’t think there is anything to it. Seaport E is a contract vehicle; this guy is vp of the company, not of seaport-e. This seems to be a small business with a lot of small business companies attached. I dont’ think there is much there.
